Dear Dr. Halpert
I am responding to your ad for a Medical Office Manager and am submitting my resume for your review and consideration. I have a degree in nursing and certification in both medical coding and medical office management enabling me to understand and answer the needs of a physician’s office and it’s administration.
In my current position as the Medical Office Manager for Carson Clinic Partners I have oversight of the office staff including hiring training and evaluation. With my background in medical coding and billing I have been able to create a plan to review patient billing before submission to insurance or medicare which has resulted in a 20 percent decrease in billing errors. As a nurse I have strong empathy for patients dealing not only with health issues but with the financial concerns that often go hand in hand. As a Medical Office Manager I also understand the pressures that physicians face every day and know where my strong sense of organisation and attention to detail free them to do their job while I do mine.
I look forward to hearing from your at your earliest convenience to discuss this mutually beneficial opportunity. Thank you for your time and consideration.
